I loved the USF- St.Petersburg campus as well as my professors! I appreciated the ease of registering for classes and the generous list of offerings each semester. I initially was not sure how long it would take me to complete my bachelor's degree as I was also working full time but thanks to the many offerings, I was able to find and take classes that complimented my work schedule and graduate with my bachelor's degree in just over a year and a half after deciding to return to school. I had a great experience here and highly recommend attending! USF St.Petersburg offers most majors and you truly can get a high-quality education at a very reasonable price!

I have already finished my summer semester and am starting fall, and I am so glad to call usfsp my home. All of my professors are so caring and just amazing. I have already gone to some of my professors for personal things and all they want to do is help. During class they encourage you to ask questions and to learn from each other. There are so many organizations to join, you can even create your own! It is right in the middle of downtown so its the perfect place to walk around with a group of friends. This school is not a party school which is great it is solely all academics. USFSP is amazing.
The University of South Florida St. Petersburg is a small school on a pretty campus. The school has nice housing and decent food for those who live on campus, and good amenities. With a small school, I had the opportunity to have the professors give me extra attention and individualized lessons. There does need to be more student participation in extracurriculars. As a Graphic Design major with minors in both Art History and Entrepreneurship, I experienced a variety of classes in different disciplines. As far as the Graphic Design and Art History departments, the teachers were all very talented in their field of expertise and tried to expand student growth in each of those areas. Unfortunately, as smaller programs they had few teachers or course, if it had more the programs would be amazing. The Entrepreneurship minor was probably the best decision I made going to USFSP. Their business department is top notch and their Entrepreneurship program is in the top fifteen in the country.
